Greetings to our many Sumter friends and acquaintances from our new residence in a continuing care retirement community in Raleigh, N.C., to be near our daughters and their families here and in Winston-Salem.
Although it was hard for us to leave, we moved here eight months ago from our beloved Sumter, where we had cherished small town living for 57 years. In addition to my years of practice at Sumter Pediatrics and my wife Charlene's homemaking and mothering activities, we involved ourselves in a number of civic, church, and other enjoyable and rewarding areas of life which the community afforded. We recommend to your readers to find their opportunities to be gainfully involved (in a small or large way) and thereby be a part of Sumter's continued progress.
Let us thank the good people of Sumter for our years of living, working, and raising our family there. May they all enjoy and appreciate the community as we did.
